Where should CircuitPython go in 2021? #CircuitPython2021 @circuitpython
As 2021 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2021. Just like past years (full summary 2019 and 2020), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet.
These, of course, are just ideas to start from. Please us know about all ideas you have for CircuitPython.
We, as a community, can use these ideas to coordinate and collaborate to make CircuitPython even better in 2021. Let’s use these ideas to spark further discussion and brainstorming. Keep an eye on the blog here and join the discussion on the Adafruit Discord.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
